Good thread. My story is similar to yours Capt. Jim. Living in the northern tier and decided life’s too short to freeze for 6 months. Retired early, people said you’ll go crazy with nothing to do. Started spending winters in Mexico or Key West. Always came back north rejuvenated. Got to spend more time doing what I like, riding bikes, sailing, snorkeling and just laying in a hammock under some palm trees. Last year we decided to buy a place in Hawaii after spending the two previous winters here. We had planned to spend those winters in Southeast Asia. Only got as far as Oahu. Scooter life really agrees with me and hardly a day goes by that I don’t take a ride somewhere.
